Conversation with a Health Crusader…Gen R Recap

quote

Greetings and welcome to the eve of 2015! I hope this year is an epic one for you. I plan to make it so!!

On Tuesday, we aired a Generation Regeneration episode which featured integrative physician Dr. Christopher Nagy. If you missed it, you can catch it On Demand here. Dr. Nagy is passionate about real health care and discussed many timely topics.

For example, Dr. Nagy spent quite a bit of time discussing the importance of hormone health, and how to achieve it. He made a great point about the importance of bio-identical hormone replacement for women at the beginning of menopause. He discussed the importance of cholesterol in the diet because it is the building block for many types of hormones (like insulin and cortisol), and also gave his viewpoint on what should be considered high cholesterol. Hint: he doesn’t just look at LDL and HDL numbers. During the 12/2/14 show with certified nutritionist Anne Baker, we also touched on the dangers of low cholesterol, and disputed the Lipid Hypothesis, which I cheekily referred to as the Lipid Hypothe-myth.

Dr. Nagy dropped many more truth bombs, regarding thyroid health, the relationship between leaky gut and autoimmune diseases (like Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, lupus, skin rashes), and the importance of a healthy gut microbiome.  I learned so much and think you will, too, so check it out at your convenience On Demand!

Thank you for checking out this post. I hope you found it informative and helpful! You can learn more about W Cubed activities at http://www.wcubedcommunity.com. Namaste!
